Easy Coconut Cake Recipe
- Prep time: 10 Minutes
- Cook time: 45 Minutes
- Total time: 55 Minutes
- Serves: 4
- 1 cup desiccated coconut
- 1 cup caster sugar
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup self-rising flour
- Preheat an oven to 160°C (320°F).
- In a bowl, combine all the ingredients.
- Once combined, pour the cake batter into a lined cake tin (22cm/9 in) and bake for 40 minutes.
- Cool for 5 minutes in the pan. Turn out onto a wire rack and allow to cool completely.
- Serve & Enjoy.
- If you want to make this vegan-friendly, you can swap the dairy milk for soy milk, almond milk, or coconut milk.
- Adding some cocoa will turn this cake into a chocolate coconut cake. I would add about one tablespoon, but you can add more or less depending on how rich in chocolate you want it to be.
- If you do not have any self-rising flour, then you can easily make some with the addition of baking powder. Add two teaspoons of baking powder to one cup of plain flour.
- Depending on where you live, caster sugar might also be called baker's sugar or superfine sugar.
